A league source in a position to know last night said there was no truth to an ESPN report that Jeff Fisher could end up as the Eagles' defensive coordinator, hours after his 16-year reign as the Tennessee Titans' head coach crumbled in a disagreement over the direction of the franchise.
Fisher's agent, Marvin Demoff, told the Daily News it was "highly unlikely" that Fisher would join the Eagles' staff.
It seemed an odd idea, that Fisher, 52, would agree to return to the job he occupied more than 20 years ago, as the Eagles' defensive coordinator, but ESPN analyst John Clayton suggested just that Thursday evening. Clayton stated that Eagles coach Andy Reid was telling potential candidates for the job that it was filled. Clayton speculated that Fisher would soon be named.
The source also denied that Reid has told anyone the job is filled, and called the report "crazy."
